Thesis Statement
Forensic psychology combines both psychology and the justice system
Psychology is the scientific study of the mind and it's functions
Forensic science is used for the purposes of law, which provides impartial scientific evidence used in the courts, criminal investigation, and trials
Combining both the study of law and human psychology, the career of a forensic psychologist is challenging, requires keen skills of observation, and can be satisfying at the same time.
